This short video highlights my experiences with colorism. I used a collage of images to illustrate this message while giving examples of how I have experienced discrimination because of the color of my skin. With this video story, I hope viewers can reflect on how some may feel marginalized because of the color of their skin. Today, I have come to understand that there is nothing wrong with who I am as a Black woman.
